Is this deck right for me?
Johanne’s board is suitable for groms over 155cm and adults under 181cm. This model is ideal for the surfer who is of average height and who really wants to perform all the carving maneuvers such as Round House Turns, Drawn out Carves, and Grab Rail turns.
5 x ply Stratified American Birch + 2 x ply Canadian Maple
Teal & White. Natural Timber
The 32.5” is the most popular model amongst male and female SmoothStar team riders, as they can push hard through their turns due to the extra concave in the deck. The Johanne Defay deck has the deepest concave of all of the smaller high performance models under 33″.
The deeper concave enables riders to hold the rail more than other models and helps maintain compression through the turn just like surfing. The tail is also the widest of all SmoothStar models, which accommodates the back foot so that your toes don’t hang off the edge. If you have another SmoothStar Thruster, you can fit it easily to this deck.
